Michael Hague attended the Los Angeles Art Center College of Design, where he met his future wife, Kathleen. After graduation he became an illustrator for Hallmark Cards. His first work for children appeared when he did the illustrations for Jane Yolen's DREAM WEAVER in 1979. The following year he produced the illustrations for Kenneth Grahame's THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. He is well known for his illustrations of fairy tales and other familiar children's stories.
Not much is known about this Greek writer. His fables, always ending with a proverb summing up the story's moral, were written to demonstrate the frailties of human life. Many figures of speech, such as "sour grapes," are derived from Aesop's tales.
